Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Still can't get ch78. Tv (which is new) won't store channels and I once had ch 10, 18 and 78 but next day all were gone and tv said no data? So, retuned and all channels started at 800, there were 10 in total. When I looked at tv info it said signal was central Scotland but this changed next day and signal strength is always less than 10! Any help appreciated as to is about to go out the window!

To offer any meaningful advice we need to check what the reception conditions are at your location, so please give a full post code so we can check.
From what you say, I would suspect that you have either too little signal or too much - but can't tell without the post code. It would also help if you give the signal strengths of channels that do work.
